I am originally from Lincoln, NE. where I began working with young children. In 1997, I moved to Arizona, where I pursued a Business Management Degree. After having 2 children, I took some time to be home with them. Once they were off to school, I knew that working with children was my passion. I have worked in the Cave Creek School District for 8 years as a Paraprofessional and most recently completed my post baccalaureate teaching certification program. I am excited to teach 1st grade at Desert Sun Academy.
I believe that 1st. grade is a year of many important milestones. Children dive into deeper academic skills. 1st. grade is a pivotal year for building reading skills. I look forward to helping your child transition into this new role.
